The Last 5

Shoes: Aasics via Zulily
I haven't done many outfit posts lately.  Maybe you've noticed, maybe you haven't.  I don't exactly pride myself on high fashion, but definitely fashionable work and life attire.  I've just really been unmotivated when it comes to planning outfits, finding a location, setting up the tripod and making it happen.  I know it is partially due to the limited wardrobe I've been experiencing since having a baby, but even more so, I blame these last, pesky 5 pounds.

That's how many I have until I'm back at my pre-pregnancy weight.  5 measly pounds.
It's not much and I'm proud of myself for only having 5 left to go, but darn if these aren't the most stubborn 5 pounds ever.  They are clinging to me.

It's such a difficult thing: losing the baby weight.  Not just the act of losing, but the mental/emotional conflict of losing.  Losing the weight affects milk supply and that affects my baby.  But then, I want so badly to fit back into my pre-pregnancy wardrobe and stop buying bigger sizes that may not fit later on.  It's a huge catch 22.  Have any of you experienced this?

I'm looking forward to summer when I have more time and energy to get my workout on.  Right now I have 2 options in the evenings:
1. get in a work out and do all the mom things or 
2. take care of the house and do all the mom things
I can't do both.  Not with a full-time job.  If you're a mom and you've got it all figured out, you rock!  And teach me. Please.

  1. Looks like we are in the same boat!
    I'm looking at my closet full of clothes that I can't fit and it just frustrates me and makes me sad.
    My mom says to just take it one day at a time and that I will lose the weight eventually. I am trying really hard not to focus on my body and just enjoy being a mom but as a woman it's really hard to do!
